Credit images

Post by Manga Reader X on Sun May 19, 2013 1:35 pm

Version 1 of the credit image is done... in Photoshop! I finally figured some stuff out and redid the whole logo as well, so now the text looks better. I made it in the exact same size as the scans, but I have the PSD so, I can change size, font and more if needed.

Spoiler:


If I can just figure out how to turn white into transparent with Photoshop, we could finally get the forum banner, or at lest a temporary version of it.

Couldn't you use the magic wand with photoshop to turn off the white? Or maybe use "Multiply"

EDIT: Be warned though, I'm not sure if that will take out the white in their eyes too, I can't get to my computer with photoshop ATM.

I have no idea. I am completely new to Photoshop and barely got this done. I have an extension for Paint.NET that automatically turns white backgrounds transparent, but the image would loose a lot of colour nuances then. I might just clone it pixel by pixel in Paint.NET.

It shouldn't even be difficult since I have all the components that make up the image as separate layers in a PSD. I just don't know how to replace the frickin' background.

I think I will take that classic Uncle Sam recruitment image and put Ghetsis face on it (if I can get it done, that is). Or, does anyone know a more fitting character from Pokémon instead of Ghetsis?

Anyway, I probably wont have time to do this or the TLC emblem until tonight.

I thought about using Oak or Rowan. They are not from BW, but I think I might use Professor Oak after all Smile

Yeah, since Professor Oak is like a professor symbol of the pokemon franchise and he's known in almost every region.

Haha I have the exact same order as well!!

Also, I agree that we should use Oak over all others. Smile

This reminds me: My persona actually used to call Professor Oak "Uncle Sam" when he was young, really young XD

I'm done with the the recruitment image. I choose to upload it to JB's site, because the forum gallery would have resized it. It turned out better than I thought it would. I replaced the stars in uncle Sam's hat with Poké Balls, since that fits the theme better.


I thought I would make a donation image as well for when Nora has made a donation pool for magazine raws.
I thought that I might put Jack Sparrow, a treasure chest and some pirate talk on the donation image. Any opinions? My humor tends to suck sometimes.

Also, I didn't add quality checkers to the recruitment note since six quality checkers is quite good already and I think we would get quite many applicants if I would mention it in the recruitment image. If we get a few more quality checkers via the recruitment posts that's fine, but if I would have added it to the recruitment note we would get a lot more than we need.

XD yeah, for now we need translators the most, but more typesetters, cleaners, TC and a magazine raw provider are also fine. Smile

You can use the Magic Eraser/Background Eraser, though I don't know if it's in other versions of Photoshop (I'm using Elements 9). The Background Eraser works like its name, it erases the background of the layer so that the layer below shows through. If you use it on the background layer it'll turn transparent. The Magic Eraser works like the Background Eraser, but it erases in large chunks (by means of finding similar colors, i.e. if a white section is clicked any white parts connected to that section will also be erased).

Thanks I will try that next time. This time I just changed the white background layer in the PSD to a transparent one.

This is beta 1 of the donation image: http://s23.postimg.org/6s4ccneka/Donation_image.jpg

The image has been resized from 3754 x 5000 pixels to 1802 x 2400 pixels. The image has also been compressed with pngquant via PNGoo. The original filesize was 13.6 MB. The current filesize is 2.26 MB. (The Photoshop document is 101 MB, not kidding.)

I will add a link to a donation thread once CodeNora has set up the donation pool and made such a thread.

It's been a while since I saw a Pirates of the Caribbean movie, so I had to watch some 'Best of Jack Sparrow' videos on YouTube and watch / read some talk like a pirate tutorials in order to try to imitate Jack Sparrow and the pirate lingo. I think it turned out ok for a beta 1 version.


EDIT:
Well, it looks like postimg auto-converted it to JPG and resized the image. I'll just have to add a better quality version that has not been touched by postimg into our releases.

XD lolz o'l Jack Sparrow, how long has it been since I've seen him. Too bad the 4th movie kinda sucked compared to the other 3. But he still rocks, together with his rum, ship and his hat that he adores so much. Laughing
